Xolotl 2013 by darksilvania Xolotl 2013 by darksilvania
As part of my weekly challenges, I had to remake one of my older drawings, so, I remade this one



My own take of the Aztec God Xolotl, which means "the monster", god of thunder, fire, black venus and the underworld

newer version is furrier, has jewerly and I changed the mace for a sharp obsidian sacrificial blade.

Well, hope you like it

I don't think he wasn't actually god of the underworld but helped guide human souls there and guided the sun on it's journey through every night, protecting it while it went through the underworld during the night c:

You should do something relating to Cthulhu. I need to see your portrayal of Lovecraft's horror.

Probably never. Sadly enough this is a rather poor portrayal of the original god. It's a great look and I love the art but the real Xolotl would not be ready for combat EVER. He's normally depicted with a skeletal frame or as an actual skeleton. Not to mention he seems like a very passive deity for being a God of Deformities, Sickness, and Bad Luck along with the Lightning and Death.

He is the dark personification of the planet Venus. His brother was Quetzalcoatl, who was the personification of Venus, so I'd guess you can call Xolotl Quetzalcoatl's evil twin?

black venus means, when you cants see venus, the planet, like a dark star, an evil version of the star, Xolotl is supposed to be Quetzlcoatl's evil twin, get it, evil twin, Black Venus, regular venus
